PHILIPPINES-ENVIRONMENT-MINING-PROTEST

GRAPHIC CONTENT A tribal leader (L) tries to fortell the future by reading signs from the liver of a pig that workers from the Philippines' largest mining firm, Philex Mining, slaughtered as part of a religious sacrifice outside the offices of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau in Manila February 6, 2013. The workers, who are from an indigineous tribe hoped the ceremonial offering would help convince the government to reopen the Padcal gold mine of the Philex Mining Corp. The company's main mining site in the northern mountain district of Padcal suffered a spill of mine waste or 'tailings' in August 2012 after the area was hit by two powerful typhoons, suspending operations at the mine since.
